mccain and senator gram are just on a warpath in general about the obama administration foreign policy in the middle east arguing it is failing .. in many dimensions. i think there are so many elements that they oppose, the one i would focus on for your viewers is, i think the job that they have done communicating with even traditional and close friends and allies, the uae, jordan would be two obvious examples, has not been what you would expect or indeed what the u.s. needs right now. this period of change in the region you have got to really stand close to all the people who matter in terms of the execution of foreign policy. >> rose:. >> maliki is not only a tyrant but from the beginning he is sectarian to the core, and that means this shiite divide and he has taken the war to the sunni minority in iraq and i think in a way has done sort of iran's bidding in that way but i think even if you set the war in syria aside, he would have an enormous problem on his hands because, on his hands because he has not -- he has not tried to be inclusive in the way that he has governed iraq, and
of democratic leaders on foreign policy in the senate. it was a real warning shot. it was a letter to obama but it was really a broadside against and it said he is doing a of things wrong and has not fulfilled his promises and his governing -- and he is governing as a sectarian warlord and the u.s. is not holding him to account for it. he is allowing too much influence by iran which is also shiite which is the same as his government. they called that a malign influence which is one of the stronger terms applied recently. concerns really are, as i laid out in the context of the apaches, that since 2011, al- maliki has promised a number of times to have an inclusive power-sharing government. one was nominally set up. by the account of john mccain and others who wrote that has set abouti to dismantle that government or undermine it. he is accompanied this trip by a sunni defense minister and a ministero foreign representing other blocs. is that that is just for show and that he really intends to continue to govern from a shiite-first perspective and so far, he has been able to essentially
are not going to publicly comment on every piece of policy and we have made clear that the united states gathers foreign intelligence of the type gathered by all nations. >> so, no comment on the past. we don't still do it, we won't do it again, but why were we doing it before, and who knew about it? the "wall street journal" reports now that the nsa was doing this basically on their own? the white house cut off some monitoring programs after learning of them, including the one tracking ms. merkel. this quote suggests that president barack obama went nearly five years as president without knowing his own spies were bugging the phones of other world leaders. one senior u.s. official tells "the journal" that the current practice has been for these types of surveillance decisions to be made at the agency level. "these decisions are made at nsa." at nsa? so, that one agency just gets to decide on its own that it's going to bug the cell phones of world leaders for years? and what, just hope the president doesn't find out about it? you guys are making the call on your own? what's going on here? and is
that these programs and policies are are not trying to trying to sweepingly go after americans and look at their private communications. foreign intelligence coming in. and i trust them. and i think the american people should trust them. >> foreign intelligence court, right? the problem is yahoo and google aren't foreign, a lot of user accounts are right here in america. they are data mining it. that's what the "the washington post" found out. my point is in order to do that you need probable cause and they are not doing that first. >> or you can have a special presidential directive which they do have in certain cases. look, eric, at the end of the day. >> but that's a problem. that's my problem. a special presidential directive. it's like the executive order pen. here is where the right is. the right is in the constitution. he by passing the constitution. >> there is no question about that. >> go ahead. >> we can't have a system of government where republicans only trust the republicans. and the democrats on trust the democrats. we have to rely on congressional oversight. this is a ve
name it. like many institutions of higher education, a high number of the students there are foreign national whors studying under student visas. under our current immigration policy, mr. speaker, our state, our public state institutions, we provide this world class education for people that feel a need in the economy. they're going to be great engineers, great mathematicians, great computer scientists. they graduate with a masters, a ph.d., what do we tell them? go back to another country and compete against us. compete against us. we're telling them to compete against us. how does that make sense, mr. speaker? what we need to do is provide a way, and the senate bill and h.r. 15 do this, where people with advanced degrees in these fields are able to stay here. today's companies don't care where the jobs are. you can be a computer programmer in india. you can be a computer programmer in france. you can be a computer programmer here. out of convenience we'd rather have you here but the job is going to follow you. the job is going to follow you, not the other way around. in addition, i
